The Flash standalone movie has been in development since 2014, but, Warner Bros. has been pushing it due to various hurdles. The film was originally expected to begin shooting in March 2019. But now, a new report claims the wait for The Flash solo movie will likely get a little longer as the studio has further delayed the film’s production to next year.
According to a report coming from Variety, citing sources close to WB, the production work on The Flash movie will likely commence sometime in late 2019. The late start could end up sliding the film to a 2021 release.
As per the report, the film’s production has been delayed to give more time to writers/directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to work on the film’s script. Daley and Goldstein, who also wrote the script for Spider-Man: Homecoming, were brought on board the project in March of this year. Furthermore, the decision to delay the film’s production was also taken to avoid any sort of scheduling conflict as the film’s lead actor Ezra Miller has a key supporting role to play in Fantastic Beasts, the Harry Potter spin-off series, which will begin shooting in July.
There’s currently no information related to the film’s plot or cast members. However, it is expected that The Flash will introduce Kiersey Clemons’ portrayal of Iris West onto the big screen.
Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen aka Flash first debuted in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. After briefly showing up in Suicide Squad, The Flash made his full, proper debut in Justice League, where fans saw him team up with Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Cyborg to fight off Steppenwolf’s invasion.
More information about The Flash solo movie is expected to be announced in the coming months. Meanwhile, some of the upcoming DC Extended Universe films include Aquaman on Dec. 21, 2018, Shazam! on April 5, 2019, and Wonder Woman 2 on Nov. 1, 2019.
